The Arizona House of Representatives Page Program provides an unforgettable experience working closely with the state legislature.

Pages are non-partisan staff and serve all 60 members of the House of Representatives. The position pays an hourly wage of $17.00. Work typically begins on the first Monday of January.

Program Description and Overview

The House of Representatives Page Program gives a unique, firsthand look into the inner workings of the legislative process. This paid internship program is an incredible opportunity for professional development and academic advancement by allowing Pages to make extensive connections with peers and mentors throughout the House of Representatives and the Capitol complex. Pages are present during Floor sessions and Committee hearings, which allows them the special opportunity to follow the development of bills to their eventual implementation as laws.

Pages play a critical role in the daily operations of the Arizona House of Representatives. The primary responsibility of a Page is to attend to the needs of the Representatives while on the House of Representatives chamber floor, in standing committee hearings, and in caucus. Pages assist in preparing for floor sessions and committee hearings by distributing legislative material to the desks of members and setting up Representatives’ computers and materials. Pages assist Representatives during floor sessions and committee hearings and are expected to stay for the duration of the meetings, which may proceed into the late evening hours.

Page duties vary, including the delivery of memos and messages, computer and technical assistance, and any other general assistance that is required.
